Our city. Our rules. Drama unfolds in one of America's toughest cities as Lionsgate releases Detroit 1-8-7: Season One to DVD this summer. Heading "the terrific, admirably diverse cast" (USA Today), Emmy winner Michael Imperioli (Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, HBO's "The Sopranos," 2004) walks the straight and narrow this time as he returns to television as Detective Louis Fitch, investigating crime, tailed by a fictional documentary crew, in the harsh city of Detroit.
The crisis, revelation and heartbreak of some of Detroit's finest are on display as a group of inner city police agree to have their days filmed by a documentary crew. Leading the officers is Lieutenant Mason (Hinds), a single mother struggling to balance her work and home lives. New partners Fitch (Imperioli) and Washington (Jon Michael Hill, Falling Overnight) are paired for their knowledge of the city and heroism on the job. But homicide work is never easy, and these cops are soon tested by the crime-ridden city in which they live.
The show has been officially cancelled by ABC, but producers are shopping it around and hoping a cable network will pick it up while Lionsgate Entertainment prepares an August 30th
